Jackson Browne, Patti Smith, Cyndi Lauper booked for Lennon tribute

UPI News Service, 09/15/2010 

Jackson Browne, Patti Smith, Cyndi Lauper, Aimee Mann, Keb' Mo' and Joan Osborne have been booked to perform at the 30th annual John Lennon Tribute in New York.

Also on the bill are Martin Sexton, Shelby Lynne, Taj Mahal, Meshell Ndegeocello, Alejandro Escovedo, the Playing for Change Band, The Kennedys, Vusi Mahlasela, Rich Pagano of the Fab Faux, YouTube sensation Chris Bliss and Wendy Osserman Dance, organizers said.

Presented by Theatre Within -- a not-for-profit performing arts presenter dedicated to producing shows to benefit charities and social causes -- the concert is to take place Nov. 12 at Manhattan's Beacon Theatre. The event is intended to benefit the Playing for Change Foundation, a group dedicated to the idea that peace and change are possible through the universal language of music.

"John's music and message continue to be a great inspiration to people all around the world, but he holds a special place in the hearts of New Yorkers," Joe Raiola, who in addition to producing the tribute will be performing in it for the 30th consecutive year, said in a statement. "John and his music still live on, and gathering in his memory and honor is a great joy."

The rock 'n' roll icon was shot and killed outside his home in New York in 1980. He was 40.
